Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and one of the senior advisers in the Trump administration, was seeking a private communications channel with the Kremlin, according to a new report in The Washington Post.
Kushner and Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak spoke of the possibility of coordinating a secret and secure communications channel between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin, the paper said.
Trump has to say Goodbye to Jared and Ivanka and bring Bannon back into the fold.
“…For three hours Friday morning inside Collins Bay Institution, the board members grilled Ahmad on everything from his beliefs and journey as a teenager to radicalism, to opinions on the current state of terrorism, trying to link Ahmad’s group to Daesh today.
Nettie also seemed unconvinced that Ahmad could be properly monitored, at one point he questioned how his supervisors would know what mosques Ahmad should avoid. “You want us to put a terrorist back into an incubator?” he said.”
The Star seems broke up by this unfortunate turn of events.
A new anti-bullying program approved by the San Diego school district is unconstitutional because it is solely about Muslim students, establishing them “as a privileged group within the school community,” a lawsuit filed in federal court Tuesday says.
The program is designed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which is “intrinsically religious in nature, the lawsuit says. The program therefore violates the First Amendment’s Establishment clause.
Police and counter-terrorism officials in Las Vegas are on alert after an ISIS propaganda video calling for lone wolf knife and truck attacks on the city’s famed Strip has been deemed a credible threat.
The threat emerged last week in a sick 44-minute video from the terrorist group that showed footage of Caesar’s Palace, the Bellagio Hotel and other icons from the casino row on South Las Vegas Boulevard.
Though the footage has been determined to be from 2015, authorities are taking no chances in the wake of the Manchester Arena massacre, and as the coming Memorial Day holiday weekend is expected to bring big crowds to The Strip.
An audience member on BBC’s Question Time claimed he was given an “anti-West” leaflet at Didsbury Mosque in Manchester which suicide bomber Salman Abedi attended.
The man said the leaflet claimed “modesty, shame and honour have no place in Western civilisation”.
However, another audience member who said she had attended the mosque for decades, argued that the mosque had a “multi-cultural community” and that the handout was “not official”.
“not official” the lies never stop.
The Muslim Brotherhood? Those would be Obama’s Buddies.

The prime minister of Poland has launched a blistering attack on the “political elites” of Europe in the wake of the Manchester terror attack, warning the continent must put in place “strong politicians” willing to tackle the threat or risk “crying over your children”.
Hours after the Manchester Massacre, the BBC’s Katty Kay told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that “Europe is getting used to attacks like this.”
Like what? Like 22 dead, 59 wounded when at the Ariana Grande concert a terrorist set off a homemade bomb.
He’s been identified as Salman Abedi – a name so typically British, and he is indeed a Brit but whose parents brought him over from Libya.
Ms. Kay, who anchors the USA bureau for the BBC, continued – “They have to [get used to it] because we are never going to be able to wipe this out.”
To American and Israeli ears, that’s Europe Talk and sounds like surrender…and what makes you say WE, Kemosabe?
And what does he think is the solution to prevent further acts of terrorism?

The third person charged is 18-year-old Abuthaher Mamun, from Barking, under the 2006 Terrorism Act, that between March 25 and May 18 intended to assist another to commit acts of terrorism by engaging in preparing and giving effect to that intention.

Det Const Sarah Towe of the Met’s Sexual Offences Exploitation and Child Abuse Command (SOECA) said Farah was a deceitful, dangerous rapist who also raped a 17-year-old in May 2010.
Douglas Murray offers a powerful critique of immigration, identity politics and Islam.
In The Strange Death of Europe, Douglas Murray argues, as the title suggests, that Europe is in its death throes. He reaches this conclusion by weaving together two arguments. First, there are too many migrants, especially of the wrong sort, entering Europe. Secondly, they are coming at a time when Europe ‘has lost sight of what it is’. Hence, he argues, ‘the movement of millions of people into a guilty, jaded and dying culture’ cannot work.
A group of men who gang-raped a lost 16-year-old girl above a takeaway have been found guilty.

She was on her way home from a night out in Ramsgate, Kent, when the men picked her up.
